Wareabouts - From Fairground To Microcar & 'Goonbarrow'?
The Ihle Brothers, Rudolf and Fritz started a coachbuilding business in Bruchsal Germany in 1930. By this time Dixi were building the Austin 7 under licence, Ihle built alternative bodies to fit this chassis.
When BMW took over Dixi they continued making bodies for them, as well as Hans, Opel, DKW etc.
It is thought they developed this car for fairground use before the war, though main production was post-war.
